Bonaire has a number of beaches, although not comparable to the beaches of Curaçao and Aruba. A small number of resorts located on the sea, have a small private beach. Due to currents and waves, the swimming on the north and east coast is strongly discouraged. There are no nude beaches on Bonaire, topless sunbathing is sometimes tolerated. Dogs are not allowed on the beach. Below is a list of a few famous beaches:

Boka Slagbaai

A beautiful sheltered beach at the Washington / Slagbaai National Park. The bay is ideal for snorkeling and diving. Access to this park is not free. There is also a small restaurant with drinks, sandwiches and burgers.
